Dear Families,
We are nearing the season of Lent this week. Ash Wednesday is this week, February 26th and the students will be attending mass at 10:00 am. You are very welcome to join us.  I always look for materials to share with families this time of year. There are a variety of Catholic publishers who provide some great resources to help families walk through Lent with their children at home.
